    Pit 21 Den 10 with 2:00 left.

    Donkos put on an impressive show for the first half plus. Their pass rush was all over Rothlesberger and their passing game was moving the ball. But once the Steelers got the run game going it was all but over. Still, anyone who thought the Cutler trade was a team downgrade... well... they were just wrong.

    So one game back now? Eagles and Donkos back to back. Our OLine better get it's act together and our pass rush will need to step it up. Donkos showed up against a strong Steelers team for real.

    Their defense is pretty damn good, but their pansy *** offense couldn't stay on the field because the Steelers defense is too. You can tell they just wore out.

    27-10 now. Donkeys have no running game, no offensive TD's, 3 INT's by Orton and no run defense. Also I don't remember the last time I saw Champ Bailey get burned over and over again. Ward jumped right over him on that last TD.

    Reality has slapped Denver in the face. Donkey fans, look out here comes the Bolts!

    Chargers need to study how the Steelers play football.

    The Steelers are good. But I've felt for awhile now that it's only a matter of time before the Bronco Orton starts looking more like the Bear Orton.

    That day has come.

    Denver's offense has scored just 10 points the past two weeks. It also can't came back and win if it's down by several scores, either.

    That's their weak point right now.


    In addition, this game could have easily been 31-3 were it not for several mistakes by Big Ben.

    The win AT! NY was Huge the Donks Just got exposed how Orton aint nothing more than a game manager. Rivers is a Leader and will lead us to winning the Division!:tup:

    First we have to handle Philly wich has been kind of SchitzoFrenic as a football team so we cant asume a W. Were goana have to earn it like how we have earned our W's so far.

    then to milehigh to kick em while thier down! LETS GO BOLTS!:abq2::abq1::abq2:

    WE really need to win the next two games. If we do, we will be leading the Division ( tie breaker, better division record ).

    GO BOLTS :abq2::abq1:

    Not just their technique, but their attitude, also.

    Seriously. They fly to the ball as a team and hit hard. The difference in attitude is like night and day.

    Maybe Weddle's game face will be contagious.

    Our Bolt's need to stay focused and take care of business. It doesn't matter to me What the Donk's do as long as our Bolt's keep winning the Donk's will feel the heat.

    did anyone hear the comment last night by Gruden during the game.


    They were talking about how the Chargers had just beat the Giants with the late game drive, and Gruden blurted out how he liked Rivers being the quarterback in that situation.

    The key to beating the Broncos defense is the No Huddle. I hope Norv was paying attention the last 2 weeks because the Ravens and Steelers used the No Huddle very effectively against the Broncos defense.

    The 2 halves for the Steelers offense was night and day. They employed the no-huddle in the 2nd half and went through them like swiss cheese.

    Is it just me or is Rivers actually often more effective with the no huddle? Some of his best drives period have been mostly no huddle drives...makes me wonder if we should try it more during a game instead of just waiting for a desperation drive?

    Peyton Manning gets a huge amount of advantage throughout many games with no huddle plays and his audibles. I'm pretty certain Rivers has enough class to emulate that.

    I would like to see the no huddle more. I don't know about doing it all the time, but I would like to see us mix it in more often to throw teams off. A great game to do it in would be against the Broncos.

    It wears out the defense and it doesn't allow them to make adjustments, which is helpful against an old defense that is going hard all game. It just wears them down and it was obvious last night and the week before.
